Great detailed photos!

I wonder if the long petiole is a result of palm's adaptation to growing in a species rich habitat where it tries to outrun its competitors in search of the sun light. I notice older specimens with longer trunks have shorter petioles.

Keep them coming.

Cheers, Jan

Jan,

Yes, they love sun very much. True that in habitat there are more chance seedling will be in deep shade of older plant and I just be noticed that older plant have shorter petiole either those are in shade or not. Natural is amazing!!.

But, if which specimens have unusual short petioles, meaning we can predict flowering will occur in 2-3 years (see pictures above, standing dead plant).

Komkrit,

Photos of Maxburretia in habitat would definitely be interesting (well, ALL the palms that you mentioned would of course be of interest...! :) ). I think very few people are actually able to grow this palm. I tried a few of them here a number of years ago (acquired from Floribunda), but unfortunately, they were never happy and subsequently died. I believe they grow on limestone in the wild, and, thus have very unique soil requirements.

Maxburretia is famous of hard growing. I know who have growing this palm in Thailand. Probably I ask him for soil ingredient and start new topic after I visit Maxburretia in habitat.

merci Komkrit for those superb pics. When the corypha has no trunk yet, it looks like a giant papyrus especially on post 6 with the water next to it...

Have you posted a whole topic on Nong nooch?

thanks again, bruno

Komkrit, i must add that those corypha look a lot like the tahina spectabilis! It is incredible. The inflorescence is exactly what I saw! Do you remember how high it was? Ten meters? 5 meters?

The tahina is a palm that can grow in California I'm sure.

I don't have this corypha yet.... Now, I need to find one to complete the collection... Any Aussie knows where I can find seeds or young plants??

Thanks Komkrit for posting the pics... They are definitely one of my favourite palms. It looks dry where they are growing, so they should do well here. How wet do you get in the wet season?

Regards, Ari :)

I remember I have posted some Nong nooch's picture on some topic ago. But don't sure with a whole topic.

I have some old pictures of Nong nooch from 4 visitings, but not enough picture to complete Nong nooch stories this time. Someday I will post them. Good news that recently my friend, Chalermchart(rthink) just show his Nong nooch's pictures on the his thread recommend to visit, there a lot nice pictures.

Thanks

The tahina is a palm that can grow in California I'm sure.

inflorescence height? or plant height? in case whole plant, ablosutely 10 meters or more.

Hello ariscott,

I don't sure where you can buy, may you ask Clayton(utopiapalm) for seedling.

This great plam are tolerate to drought, water and fire. They should grow anywhere except frost.

I've seen they survive in the rice field. On wet season, should be semi-flood there.

If you get this one, give them more watering, the better growth return.

Thanks a lot

Komkrit

Hello Kris,

After one year passed, our seed are becoming 1 year seedling now. This is from the same seed lot as yours.

Please don't ask me where I plan to ground, I could not answer even myself this time. In 2-3 years I will find the way.

Thanks

Komkrit

Nice pictures!

And the palms are wonderful, too! (Your girlfriend is a doll!)

Hmm. How could I have missed them from before?

Hmm. Maybe send us some seeds? We'll see if they'll grow here in California . . . . .

Paul The Palm Doctor!

Absolutely & phenomenally gorgeous palm photos, Komkrit! I am moved by their massive, yet somehow, delicate majesty! I feel that these palms are a special gift to this world, from another, simpler, less commercial time!

They teach a lesson to all that gaze upon their massive elegance! I will not ever be the same, for seeing their beauty!

Many thanks for your humble presentation, Konkrit. We are aspecially blessed to view such botanic grandeur!

Most sincerely,

Paul in Florida
